Jaguar Run 2017: London to Eastbourne

Jaguar Run 2017: London to Eastbourne

The 19th Annual Run got underway on Sunday morning from The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich; ending on Eastbourne sea front – there great turn out and despite a little traffic close to London, we all got there in the end.

Breakfast on arrival and well received tea and coffee by all waiting to depart. Check out Mr & Mrs H below beside their glorious blue S-Type.

We were blessed with a day of sunshine and no rain which made car spotting a joyous hooray.  All the crafted precious metal was twinkling and glinting in the sun it was hard to know where exactly to start.

Parking around the College square was restricted this year and certainly no driving on the pavement was permitted. However, cars were invited to park on the square as other cars departed to start their journey to Eastbourne.

Highly prepped and polished cars began to fill the available parking areas and we must give a nod of gratitude to the High Visibility Vest Marshals for keeping everyone safe, informed and moving in the right direction!

This wonderful supercharged XFR was just so happy to see us and pose for this delightful pic.

The Old Royal Naval College provides a spectacular backdrop from which to set off and this 1980 XJ6 simply looked glorious against it.

With only a handful of original C-Types still I service we were not disappointed to see this replica C-Type at all.

 

This XJR has been a long time Paramount Performance Client, it was a joy to see it out with the family and enjoying the day. Roy (the owner not the car!) has been doing the London to Brighton run for over 10 years now and it’s a real family and friends day out.

We make a pose for our own picture at the starting point in our F-Type 650bhp Predator – onlookers demanding we give the throttle some welly to sound off the deep growl of the Paramount Performance exhaust system. We gave a gentle and respectable rev to please the crowd – since last year we revved the sweet-cheese-n-biscuits out of our XKR only to be told off as Church was in service…Doh!

We set of at a well, within the speed limited, and are encouraged with the directions in the route book as they seem to be significantly better than last years, we even had photos this year of landmarks, clever things.

We encounter traffic almost instantly and wondered if the E-Types would cope in the heat from the sun and slow moving traffic.  They pulled through however, and we managed to grab a snapshot as the drivers were clearly concentrating on the flow of the traffic, more so that we were, and they whizz past us before we realised their lane was still moving!

Jaguar E-Type Classic

We eventually clear through A2 traffic and were off.

We still have the sat nav speaking in tongues to us throughout the journey as we still not 100% sure of the route map, however, we preserver and arrive at Raystede – Centre for animal welfare; the main stop off point. We make a donation and head off to visit the alpacas enclosure, we grab coffee, cake a cheese toasty and then head back to our F-Type 650bhp Predator only to marvel once again at the E-Type parked next to us.

We set off, slightly more refreshed and Eastbourne the target!

As we seem to have abandoned the route book in favour of sight-seeing when we spot a very brilliant gold 700bhp Mercedes Benz! Obviously the occupants were enjoying a bit of ice cream enroute to admire the Jaguars on the Green! Our mag pie photography lost a bit of loyalty for a moment it seems as we found over 10 images snapped of the Merc.

Given our distractions we arrive at the finish point at the wrong end of the road, indeed it was closed off but High Vis-Vest welcomed us through with a welcome smile and nod of admiration for the motor.

We park up on white jag row and settle in to enjoying the location. Chatting blissfully to other drivers and visitors.

The day remained glorious with no rain at all and only blue sky. We are opposite the Grand and naturally pitched up for a spot of afternoon tea.

We then get a bit snap-happy and deliver you the following to enjoy.

Ford Fiesta ST 1.6 EcoBoost Tuning Upgrade Pack from Paramount Performance

Ford Fiesta ST 1.6 EcoBoost Tuning Upgrade Pack from Paramount Performance

Ford Fiesta ST 1.6 EcoBoost Tuning Upgrade Pack from Paramount Performance is now available for this small nippy car. Whilst not the usual Paramount Performance fair, the Viezu Ford Fiesta ST 1.6 EcoBoost Tuning Upgrade Pack is just being launched and we thought it is worth a mention since many Paramount Customers do have these compact hot hatches in the family too!

If you like to know more of the techy stuff, here is some more information for you

Viezu operates one of the UK’s most powerful Mustang AWD chassis dyno, 3000bhp rolling road and uses it to develop its remaps, chip tuning and software upgrades for the Ford Fiesta ST Tuning and other vehicles of interest.

The Viezu Stage 2 package Ford Fiesta ST ECU remap makes safe and reliable use of the Ford Fiesta ST EcoBoost’s engine software and components bringing them up to their optimum running capabilities. Replacing the intercooler, Viezu’s engine ecu ‘chipping’ software maintains stronger and higher boost levels consistenly throughout the dynamometre rolling road runs and under full load. This ensures all elements of the Ford Fiesta ST remap are well within the tolerance of its engine.

Unlocking the Ford Fiesta software, Viezu can ensure it makes full use of the Fiesta ST 1.6 EcoBoost’s great engine. It is totally fully optimised and the throttle responds with stronger power delivery. The turbo gets up instantly and pulls harder lower down than any other similar sized engines on the market.

Viezu Technologies have designed the new car tuning software in the engine ECU to deliver the torque and boost instantly and making the Ford Fiesta ST very responsive and nippy to drive. There is no more drop in power when the Fiesta is warming up with Viezu’s specialist engine chip tuning recalibration designed to work perfectly with the Viezu Technologies uprated inter cooler making this the best tuning package on the market for the Fiesta ST 1.6 EcoBoost Tuning.

Customer Comments

“Feels like a completely different car … it’s an absolute monster!”

Viezu Technologies develops its software in house on a live vehicle and rolling road with specialist engine remapping and ecu chip re-calibration and chip tuning tools.

This is an excellent example of the Ford Fiesta ST Remap options, please call the Paramount Team if you would like to learn more about the tuning of hot-hatches!

 

650bhp Jaguar F-TYPE Performance Upgrade Package

Image of 650bhp Jaguar F-Type Project Predator

650bhp Jaguar F-Type

Paramount Performance is excited to announce the launch the 650bhp Jaguar F-TYPE – the ‘Project Predator’.  With a performance ECU remap taking the F-TYPE’s power to a staggering 650bhp and a top speed of over 200mph, this is power not to be messed with.  The suite of upgrades under the bonnet are complemented by a range of styling upgrades and modifications to the exterior making the already beautiful F-TYPE into a work of art.

Under the bonnet, high-performance air filters were added to increase air intake into the engine and aid combustion and throttle power, while an uprated supercharger pulley brings the performance ECU remap to life by increasing supercharger boost pressures to perfectly match the enhanced fuelling delivered by the ECU remap.  This delivers substantial reductions in 0-60 times and increases power delivery across the whole rev range.

The Jaguar F-TYPE’s suspension has been lowered by 30mm to improve its poise and stance, with harder, stronger suspension parts, joints and rubbers improving its responsiveness on the road.  The addition of a full manifold back performance exhaust system transforms the sound as well as the power, with switchable sound options giving a choice of ‘loud’ and ‘really loud’ sound, while improving exhaust gas cycling through the engine and boosting the F-TYPE’s power even further.  A choice of exhaust tips, including Paramount Performance’s ‘fighter jet’ tips, add an element of subtle, polished styling.

To the exterior, a range of polished carbon-fibre elements have been added, including a front carbon-fibre splitter, bonnet vents and rear diffuser adding that ‘eye-candy’ attractiveness which will really make heads turn.  Window tinting is available as an optional extra, while hand-cast aluminium wheels really complete the look, with 24 different design options and 28 different colours.

Performance Tuning for your Jaguar F Type.

The Jaguar F Type, arguably the most beautiful car ever produced is a work of art and something to behold. Its powerful curves, bold lines and road presence really are a return to form from their sports car days of the Jaguar D and E Type.

So how can you improve such an astonishing car… That is where Paramount Performance come into their own. We are Jaguar specialists and our Jaguar F Type range is no exception.

You can view our growing range of Jaguar F Type products at www.paramount-performance.com

We are currently offering, for the months of June and July a special price of £995 for our bespoke 3 litre or 5 litre F-type supercharger pulley and a custom remap from Viezu Technologies with the option of a power run on our dynamometer (subject to availability).
